A timeless and pretty Edwardian Ruby and Pearl horseshoe brooch with graduated interlocking circle motifs. The brooch dating from 1909 and hand crafted in Chester, England depicts a common symbolic motif of the horseshoe, capturing luck and good fortune upon its wearer. The brooch can be worn either way, horseshoe facing up or down to collect luck or allowing the luck to flow from its centre. The alternating pearls and rubies add an extra layer of antique style and sophistication. The brooch also maintains its original safety chain and pin. A very pretty gift or addition to a collectors hoard.
